A Clinician’s Perspective on Burnout

Thought Leadership  |  14 January 2020  |  By Tom Pasquariello, PharmD, BCPS, BCMAS, PRS

At some point in our lives, every healthcare professional has experienced some form of burnout. I know as a pharmacist, I have experienced this numerous times. In today’s healthcare environment, no clinician is beyond the risk of burnout. And the implications of burnout go beyond clinical satisfaction. Healthcare businesses are seeing complex issues arise from the effects of burnout, and these can have impact on patient care. The obvious question is “what is being done about it?”

The good news is there is real progress being made to meet these challenges. With clinicians spending huge portions of every day interfacing with their electronic health record software, one opportunity with great potential is to improve electronic health record software with enhancements designed specifically to reduce burnout.

A new report on clinician burnout, authored by a cross-functional team of clinical professionals at Veradigm, examines the causes of burnout, as well as the impact it has on clinicians and care. The report goes on to detail how Veradigm has used customer feedback and up-to-date medical literature resources to improve and enhance the Practice Fusion EHR experience for clinicians. Through initiatives such as the Helper Philosophy, Veradigm is able to suggest techniques and workflows that can assist clinicians to help reduce the likeliness of clinician burnout.

With a little help from Veradigm, clinicians at your practice can improve quality of their life in and outside the practice, while enhancing the quality and efficiency of care for your patients at the same time.
